Sweden Tests 6-Hour Work Day

An increasing number of businesses in Sweden are said to be experimenting with six-hour working days, Money.aol reported. Reports say that Toyota service centers in Gothenburg switched 13 years ago, and more recently app developer, Filimundus, and a retirement home apparently making the change. Productivity is said to be up compared to those working eight-hour days and staff are reportedly happier with more time spent outside work. In return, employees are banned from using social media at work and there are fewer pauses in meetings. The aim behind the concept is that staff will become more motivated during the time spent at work. Linus Feldt, the CEO of app developer Filimundus, told the Fast Company: “To stay focused on a specific work task for eight hours is a huge challenge. In order to cope, we mix in things and pauses to make the workday more endurable.”
